- “You have two eyes, each composed of 130 million photoreceptor cells. In each one of those cells, there are 100,000,000,000,000 (100 trillion) atoms – that’s more than all the stars in the Milky Way Galaxy. However, each atom in each cell in each eye formed in the core of a star, billions of years ago, & yet, here they are today, being utilized to capture the energy released from that same process. All to expand the consciousness of YOU. The Universe has an interesting sense of irony, in that you are the Universe experiencing itself. And all you are is a thought.” ~ Anonymous
- “You are the universe, expressing itself as a human for a little while.” ~ Eckhart Tolle
- “Really, the fundamental, ultimate mystery — the only thing you need to know to understand the deepest metaphysical secrets — is this: that for every outside there is an inside and for every inside there is an outside, and although they are different, they go together.” ~ Alan Watts

Consider the universe. Something that matters. Full of matter. Let’s assume it started with a big bang and is ever expanding. Let’s also assume we are now at a kind of treshold where mankind’s consciousness is opening up, and starts expanding together with the universe. The expanding rate of the universe slowly but surely comes into sync with humanities global consciousness rate. What would it look like?
Picture yourself that our internal brain network (a closed ecosystem) starts opening up and connecting with other brain networks, leading to connected ecosystems. And suppose more and more persons are able to transmit brainwaves with increasingly higher frequencies, and at the same time, more and more persons develop the capability to absorb these higher frequencies, then the net effect could be that we are actually transforming into an increasing global consciousness.
And with this increasing global consciousness, we will be increasingly better able to understand each others pains. This increased awareness will give us the understanding that we need to help each other, take care of each other. Because we start to see that’s the only sustainable way that will let us survive in an ever expanding universe. And thus, our global consciousness is only an intermediate step away of universal consciousness. And the more we are globally conscious, the less matter matters. Because the thoughts we create together create matter. And that matters most because we finally come to the point where mind over matter is no longer just some nice quote but actually reality. How are your mind over matter capabilities developing?
We live in a transitioning world. Slowly but surely we leave the era of duality (you versus me, them against us, dark vs light, luxury vs poverty, greed vs charity, better vs worse etc.). We are moving into the new era of singularity, where oneness becomes increasingly more important than dualism. But this is not an easy road. We have to learn to let go of certain things, themes, strategies, dogmas, cultures etc. from the past. And learn to embrace new, often counter imposing variants of these same themes. The intermediate strategy to transform, if you may call it that, is triality. Triality let’s us see both the old duality and the new singularity as well as all other in-between variants. It allows choice to either stick to duality or embrace singularity. You are the master of your own choice. It’s all up to you, nobody can help you decide. You have to decide for yourself. With triality, we will for example learn to see that no single person is either or bad or good. We will learn to embrace each others corresponding parts instead of focusing on the differences.We will learn to celebrate each others unique parts instead of trying to dominate your own uniqueness at the cost of someone else. We will learn how to distribute power instead of centralizing it. We will learn to see that harmony outperforms separation. We have to learn how to transform from a self-destructing society to a sustainable society. I wish you a pleasant yourney on your own choosen path from duality to singularity. A path so your children will later say: my parents left me a beautiful world.
This blog is inspired by the following quote of Shirdi Sai Baba: “Before you speak, ask yourself: does it improve the silence?”. If you are uncertain, you might be influenced by this quote. It could hold you back from speaking out aloud or if you’re a blogger, hold you back from writing/publishing. But if you think about it more deeply, the time is here that at least some people on earth should improve certain silence. The silence that is still here because many people are afraid to break it open. Afraid, because we all know we are struggling with the way forward, caught in self invented societal systems that have no real feedback loop (e.g. eternal growth, totally free market etc.) and are now running out of control. And we really don’t know yet what to do about it. So it’s time to investigate the control loops of these systems. Shed some light upon it. Write light into the silence of the control loop designs. Break the silence by investigating it’s original drivers. Which often were deeply rooted in egoistic, service-to-self paradigmas. Now it’s time to start developing control loops that add a new service level: service-to-others. So in the end we have not open-loop but closed-loop control systems where both service-to-self and service-to-others are reinforcing control stimuli, balancing both gathering and sharing drivers.
So you’re just one of the 4 billion people on this planet who loves to live in it’s comfort zone. Welcome to the club. Nothing wrong with living in comfort. Many will even say out aloud they love to be in the victim role. So they don’t have to leave their comfort zone, even if it’s not as comfortable as it might be (look at the fishbowl picture). Rather stay in the well-known comfort zone than take a huge step to an unknown territory. But what if this huge step would put you in a new comfort zone that is much more comfortable? Would you then still stay in your old zone? Or would you take the step and try it? How comfortable do you want to leave your comfort zone? Or do you need a leader or entrepreneur or risc-savvy initiator first to help you take the first step? Or maybe you just decided you want to be that leader or entrepeneur yourself. In that case: congratulations!
Humanity is slowly but surely waking up. More and more people are remembering ancient knowledge they already had slumbering. But there are still a lot of people who are more or less ‘sleeping’, in the comfort of their blindfold. They either don’t want to see or they are afraid to see or just don’t see at all the reality they are creating themselves. The reality that we are heading for if we keep on doing the things we allways have done. Like for instance striving for endless growth, which is basically an egocentric, greed-oriented strategy. It’s just not sustainable. So we need to find new ways to cope with growth which will no longer be endless. And forget about these old strategies. But where do we start? In fact it’s just plain simple. If you start with a mindset that you want to take care of others (no mather how few or how many or how little or how much), you have started a sustainable strategy. It’s that simple. And the more people copy your example and start to apply this strategy, the better we will take care of eachother and the less need there will be to sustain old ego-centered strategies.
